Something for the weekend?
What we would really like to do this weekend is lie down in a darkened room with a cold compress. However as this is the last weekend before Barnaby there is simply too much to do!
Make sure you nip into town to buy your tickets for key events*: The Marionette Theatre Co at the library on Friday, The Monkey Run Opera and the extraordinary Jim Moray at Fresh on Sunday. For us the big one is the eccentric Pull The Other One cabaret at the Town Hall on the Friday night and we hope to get a good loop showing for this wonderfully peculiar night (with real ale too).
Delighted to see M&S behaving in such a 'local' way and truly joining in the spirit of the Festival. Look out for more creative windows too.
If you enjoy your Art with a glass of good wine in your hand ( who doesn't?.) then Renaissance Art and Wine have re badged themselves ( formerly Paragon) and have a wine tasting with their show on Saturday.
Moving Clay group of Artists have a new show opening in the upstairs Dukes Court Art Studios with a selling exhibition of paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, jewellery and textiles.
Fairs and Frivolities opens a Macc library, an intruiging visual record of Barnaby Holidays of former times taken from their archives..And they have a busy morning of free craft activities too. See posting below.
If you fancy some Trad Jazz, Annie's Saints and Sinners are stomping at the Egerton Arms in Chelford on Friday night and and you can hear Silk Brass playing on the restored band stand in South Park on Sunday ortry the Irish Acoustic night at the Hollins on Friday night. Meanwhile Dazed and Confused and the Screaming Beavers bring the music to The East Cheshire Hospice fund raiser GIG & A Game. You know which game..
